Erected by towns or businesses to aid unfamiliar travelers, milestones typically stood up to 5' tall, were crudely carved out of roughly hewn granite, and often referred to towns by first initial only. They could be both difficult to read and inaccurate.

In 1790 this area of Hooksett was part of Chester. This milestone told travelers it was 16 miles to Chester Meeting House and 32 miles to Haverhill, Mass., a regional industrial center.
